Anyone know which wheel weighs less?


Recommended Posts

I can't find a weight on the older (2004 BBS mesh) wheel to compare with the 10 spoke STI wheel.


Anyone know?

Though I don't have the WRX optional wheel, I do have a Subaru-specific BBS mesh wheel that's very similar (for pics, see here). The main difference is that mine is an 8.5" wide rim while the option wheel is only 7" wide. Mine weigh ~16.5 lbs on my bathroom scale.


The optional wheel is also very similar to the RGR available from Tirerack. They list the 17x7.5" wheel as weighing in at 17.6 lbs. It's got a visibly different center area though and who knows how that affects the weight.
